Closing the Outer Space Series with this outstanding third volume, Starting Teeth and their Canadian mate Jules Chaz share a common love for future textured electronic beatscapes, catchy soulful melodies, psycho synth pads, and a flurry of weird samples.
Since their debut album I Won't Do Anything I Can Do in 2008, Starting Teeth, formerly Hopen and Hrdvsion, have constantly been pushing electronic music forward with a unique sound aesthetic. By bringing "Force", a crazy and trippy original track, Starting Teeth plunges into a haunted atmosphere overlaying the melodic rhythm with percussion, to finish with wonderful synth pads melodies. The Jules Chaz remix is an epic instrumental hip hop cut. Trading psych haunted pads for spatial field recordings, he turns it into a sunny classic version.
Jules Chaz starts "Catnip Thunder" with a crackled vinyl sound, introducing then deep synth pads, a snap beat and sweet rumbling string to create a beautiful syncopated and glitchy hip hop track, while Starting Teeth twists it with humor on adding their very own beautiful soundscaped imprint, a catchy hook slow-motion drumbeat and finishes "Catnip Thunder" remix with a crackling vinyl to close the loop.
